TIGARD — North Medford's Matt Maurer capped a long day for the Black Tornado baseball team with an extraordinary effort Tuesday.

TIGARD — North Medford's Matt Maurer capped a long day for the Black Tornado baseball team with an extraordinary effort Tuesday.

The junior left-hander tossed a no-hitter against Oregon City for a 1-0 win in the Tigard Tournament.

Earlier in the day, North traveled to Salem and suffered its first defeat of the season, 4-1 to McNary, in a tournament game postponed by rain Monday.

After returning to Tigard, Maurer took control with seven strikeouts and four walks. Maurer needed only 94 pitches, with his fastball clocking around 88 mph.

"Matt pitched really well," said North Medford coach Brett Wolfe. "His velocity has picked up after finishing basketball. His fastball shows he's stronger than he was a week ago. Anytime you're hitting 86 to 90 mph, you're doing well."

Catcher Colin Sowers reached safely in the second and stole second to set up Brady Shipley, who followed with an RBI double for the Black Tornado (5-1).

Chris Bradshaw had the only other hit for North, knocking his second double of the day.

In the morning game, McNary scored all its runs in the second inning thanks in part to a North Medford throwing error and a two-run double by Sheldon Austina.

Will Allbright came on in relief of Shipley in the second inning and pitched 41/3 scoreless innings.
